husbandry. Washington early endeav
ored to establish a national society. By
letter and in message to Congress he
urged the importance and utility of such
a society. In his annual speeth to the
Houses ef Congress, as early as 17U0, he
said, "it will not be doubted with refer
ence to either individual or national wel
fare that agriculture is of primary impor
tance." Iu proportion as nations ad
vance in population and other cireum
ces of maturity this truth becomes more
apparent and "renders the cultivation of
the soil more and more an object of pub
lic patronage. Among the means which
have been employed to this end none
have been attended with greater success
than the establishment of boards com
posed of tho proper characters cr wcd
with collecting and diffusing information
end enabled by premiums and small pe
cuniary aids to encourage and assist a
spirit of discovery and improvement.
Experience has shown that they are
very cheap instruments of vast national
Washington 'did not live to see his
idol realized, though the society of
1810, of which I have spoken, secmecd
at the time tho budding of his hopes, but
tho war of 1812 so overshadowed every
other subject that it withered and died
after an existence of three years.
Washington seemed to foresee , that
great difficulties would beset and
much time elapse in consummating his
cherished st-hcme,and his prophetic mind
pointed out just snch societies as ours
the mean by which greater national at
tainments would finally be reached, for
in a letter to a friend he said. It will be
aomo time, I fear, before an agricultaral
society, with congressional aid, will be
established in this country."
Wc must walk before we can run.
Smaller societies must prepare the way
for greater, but, with th lights bctbr-j as,
I hope we shall not be so slow in matur
ing ts older nations have Veon." In 1840J
Soloa Robinson and some other gcntfo-T
men interested in agriculture, called a.
convention which met at Washington
and organized what they called "the
Unttttf States Society," and made stren
uous Vflorts to obtain the mithon dona

In 18(11 a Department of Agriculture
was created by Congress, with officers
consisting of Commissioner. Superin
tendent of Gardens, Superintendent of
.experimental rami, .hutomologist,
Chemist and Statistician. The vast
amount of good already realized from
una csiaoiisiunciii is ueyonu compula
tion. Millions of packages of seeds and
small fruits have been gratuitously dis
tributed through every part of our land.
The principal diseases to which our stock
are subject have been examined into by
compeleut men and tho causes and rem
edies given to the public. Insects inju
rious to vegetation have been described
and all known remedies given, and im
proved methods of cultivation explained.
The whole world has been made tribu
tary to this department for information,
seeds and plants. All foreign consuls
are required to collect seeds and plants
of known or probable value, and in the
Capital ot our nation thoy arotned, and
if found suited to our soil and climate

are all agricultural societies and farment,
clubs deired to communicate with this

quite all of the extensively advertised

new and valuable wheats, for which far
mers have paid such extravagant prices
of oats, have come from this department
it is very raroiy that any ot these new
varitiefc have been the exclusive proper
ty of any one man, but enterprising
men forsceing a demand, as rapidly as
posiblo accumulated seed, and then by
skillful advertisciug accumulated for
tunes, after selling to thousands just
such seeds as they themselves had secur
ed from the samo source but failed to
propagate through carelessness or indif
ference, ilut 1 believe, 1 am sure, that
if these seeds aae received by this socie
ty, and then by the officers placed in the
hands ot men who we know will curciul
ly test them, great good will result.
The transaction of oar ewn State soci
ety, and especially of onr Horticulture
society shonld be secured and faithfully-
preserved, in tbe.selection and propaga
tion of fruit trees, too much care cannot
be exercised, and the accumulated expe
rience of oarJost fruit raisers is here

fully Bartering andgrowiug an orchard,
which will finally prove almost worth
less, when if other varieties, better suit
ed toour soil and climate, hail been sub
stituted, an abundant harvest of lusciou
fruit,. would have rewarded the owner.
To enable the farmer to do this is apart
transactions in which the detailed cxpe-

method of cultivation; also of experi

Too much attention can not be bestowed
uponnhis subject, taf there is very much
to bi learned. For instance, I believe
that the most of farmers, every thing

Christopher .Columbns a sturdy old

Historic doubt that peculiar disease of
over done ucuteuess, has attacked even
him. A writer in the February number
oi uarpcrs jioniiny nas examineu wun
this powerful microscope the claims of
Mr. Columbus to the honor of having
discovered the Western Hemisphere, and
of course, finds them unsupported. The
island of Antilia, now Cuba, was known,
says this sapient gentleman, years before
Columbus was bom. To be sure no one
had ever visited it, and then returned to
Europe to give authentic information.
But was "there not a tradition that when
the followers of " God and the prophet"
ravaged Spain in the ciglit century a pi
ous archbishop. and his pious flock, like
another .-Eneas, about to found Borne,

author does not say. Seeing that the
African, as represented on the Eg-ttan
monuments, has varied very little in at
least sixty centuries, there "is room for
very grave "historic doubts" as to the
soundness of this kind of reasoning. The
well earned reputation of Columbus is
perhaps open to attack, but this loose
talk is hard!- worthy of reputation. It

How wsld ydj liko to live where
.ou rouid go nut Ansa pick oysters for
dinner, asyou doajfjle? You heed not
smile ; you eoaid StiwTa d, it if Vou lived
near aii oyster farmf And it "is aboat
these curitmsamis that 1 want to U-li
you. .:
You mut know that wc ate so many
oysters thatfhcy grew scarce in many
places, wid people began 'to tsaartbat afc
'tioma i-xliaut the supply. That would
be a sail calamity to those who are very
fond of oysters, so some enterprising
men set themselves to work to cultivate
oysters as we do potatoes only in a dlf.
icrcni WAy. hea the little oyster is
launched into life to take care of himself,
his first care is to secure a home. His
wants Arc very simply. reo.uirin: mcrclr
a holding on place for holding on is tho
speciality of an oyster. If he cannot
once secure a safe home, he is almost
sure to bo devoured by fUhcs, for fishes
use oysters as well aa men.
As soon as tlii fact about the young
oyster was, discovered by the wiaetnon,
they conceived the idea of providing
homes tor the little creatarc,a men pro
vide homes for poor little children only
as oysters don't caro for cradles and milk,
their nurseries were made this way i
